In the Scrap Heap Again. I
A proposal Is before the leglsla-j
turn to do away with tho use of vol-.
Ins; machines In Nebraska by repeal-'
Inp the law authorizing their ln-
atallatlon. . .
Whon on a particular occasion two'
years ago suit was brought In court -Thirty Vcnrn Aro
to enjoin their use for tho then lm- Th 'location of the state fair at Omaha
ponding county election, a terrible i for another two years Is settled by
outcry was rained by the democratic
World-Herald against this atrocious
outrage which, It declared, would
throw Into tho scrap heap $50,000
worth of voting machines paid for
out of tho public treasury. To dis
continue voting machlno voting, wo
wero told by this democratic organ,
would bo equivalent to a rapo of tho
ballot, a consummation of a clover
conspiracy and an assault on tho
liberties of tho people that must bo
repelled at all costs. And then,
within a few weeks, the democratic
county board voted tho machines out
of commission, since which time they
havo not been recallod.
(lotting back to the main proposi
tion, experience In Omaha with tho
voting machlno has shown It to pos
sess many advantages In Its Infalli
ble accuracy, Its oxp'dltlon and Its
automatic count. Tho one fcaturo
thnt haB evoked objection auu wo
aro not suro whether It Is peculiar
only to tho particular machine used
n Omaha Is that the party lovor 1b
strongly conducive to straight party
tickets. It tho machine could bo
ltBed with facility without the party
lover, this objection would bo re
moved and Iho advantages rotainod.
"We believe, thorofore, that It
would be bettor not to repoal tho
voting machlno law entirely, but to
nmond It so as to romove tho party
over along with tho party circle
from tho ballots, and to permit the
uso of tho voting machine whenever
it can be readjusted to comply with
such requirements. Tho machine if
used should, wo insist, glvo every
candidate running for office on any
ticket an equal chance with his com
petitor to sccuro tho voter's atten
tion. A nhort ballot on tho voting
mnchlno, permitting the recording of
Individual rlreforcnccs only, would
afford tho really desirable method

Trust Companies Nt to lllnnir.
NBW YORK, Jan. U.-To the Boitor ot
Tho Ilee: My attention haS been called
to an edltoriat In n recent Issue of The
lien In which the stntemnt BPpars tnat
trust companies precipitated the panic of
1OT7 and that It Is a favorite device ot
promoters to disguise thclf questionable
or speculative operations UmW the title
of "trust company "
I am sure that Tho Uee Wishes to
bo absolutely fair and Just toward all
kinds of bunking or financial Institution!
which are safely managed and porfornt
legitimate services In tho communities
where they aro located. It Is true that in
years gono by. numerous "fnko" Invest
ments and speculative enterprises were
promoted by so-cnlled 'trust companies."
Such disguises were used specially In
states where no adequate laws had been
provided defining the kind- of business
which a chnrtered trust company may
cngago In and. where no state supervision
had been provided. There aro still a num
ber of states, notably Delaware' South
Dakota, Arliona and Illinois wnere the
laws afford loopholes for unscrupulous or
sneculatlvclv Inclined men or syndicton
to mislead tho public by using such titles,'
But the field of their operations Is being
narrowed down and within the last -ew
years systematic work has been done
under the direction ot the committee on
nrotectlve laws of tho trust company
section, American Bankers' association,
which prevents tho misuse of the uue.
"trust company" and provldesi proper su
pervision In the different states.
There Is still much misconception on i
the status and kind of business conuuiacu
hv bona fldo trust companies In this coun
try. Let mo briefly give you some figures
recently complied. There nro over l.iW
,hnriri nnd successful trust companies
lit tho United States. Of this number l,8Tt
.T.mA .in last, reported commneu oaim
Ing resources of $3,W,570,000. which W
nunl to 23 ner cent of the total banking
power of the nation. In addition to theso
banking resources tho trust companies
hold In their custody as trustee or execu
tor under wills and In the administration
of estates and execution ot various per
sonal trusts, largely In bohalt ot aeccaiei
n.i,u. nroDortv and funds amounting In
.nJltft in S7.&OO.O0O.OM. In addition to this
tho trust companies act as trustees under
rnrnoratlon mortgages where tney nom

nrntM-Hnn nf Investors, or hi
fi.rni nirents In reorganizations and re
celvorshlps. etc., the vast amount of
I'S 000.O00.OS0 worth of security and cor-
poratlon.propcrty subject to mortgages o-
i etnn'dK in reason that If corporations
and Individuals entrust over J30.O0O.OW.0OO
worth of property equal to one-iounn
the combined wealth of the nation, to
trust company managements that they
,-nntnln superior elements of safety nnd
i-Kiinhllltv. What Is moro to the point
is this. 1. e.. that within tho last fifteen
years there wore only three failures of
trust companies which Involved any loss
to trust funds or property.
1 do not profess t6 have an intimate
knowledge with financial conditions in
Nohraskn. but It appears to me. In the
light of trust company Influence In other
tnees. that Nebraska legislators pursue
a mistaken policy In not considering
moro seriously the advisability of fram
ing up-to-'date laws providing for trust
company Incorporation. Tust companies
not only help to keep local surplus funds
nrofltabtv employed,, but are moBi in
fluential In attracting Investment capital
from other sections. They offer a better
milium for the administration pf cs
tates ot thoso men and women In Ne
braska who wish to protect their kins
folk In the event of their death.
Finally. f In regard to tho statement
that trust companies precipitated the
panic ot 1907. When tho frightened de
positors of a big New York trust company
besieged Its door on a certain fateful day
they were met with the posted notice,
signed by the superintendent of the statu
banking department, announcing that an
examination had been made of the com-'
pany and that It hai been found solvent
The fright of the depositors was not
cnused by any suspicion directed pre
viously against tho trust company, but
to tho exposure of Vicious operations of
gtoups of chain bank promoters. Sub
sequent events havo proven the Injustice
of this action. The trust company .not
only reopened Its doors, paid off hit Its
credits In full with Interest, but Is to
day one of the strongest and most con
servatlvcly managed trust companies In
Tho "money trust" Inquiry'., aa well as
the strain upon our banking resources,
caused by the requirements for moving
the bumper crop ot 1912, both afford ex- j
cellent proof that the blame for nny
evils that exist In bank or trust company 1
management is not duo to deliberate mis
use of credit or banking power, but to
the retroactive character and defects of
our national monetary system. Theso can
only be cured by rational legislation.
